1984 Bobsleigh Track Sarajevo

Quote:
When Sarajevo was awarded the 1984 Winter Olympics in 1977, a bobsleigh and luge track was proposed. The track design was approved in 1981, with construction starting on 1 June of that year.Construction was completed on 30 September 1982 at a cost YUD 563,209,000. The 1984 games had 20,000 luge spectators and 30,000 bobsleigh spectators. After the Winter Olympics, the track was used for World Cup competitions until the start of the Yugoslav wars in 1991 that would include the Siege of Sarajevo the following year. The track was damaged as a result of the siege which occurred during the Bosnian War. During the siege, the track was used as an artillery position by Bosnian Serb forces. Today, the tracks still remain mostly intact with war wounds of defensive fighting holes, drilled into one of the last turns of the course. The tracks today are mainly used as a target for vandalism by graffiti.

Re: 1984 Bobsleigh Track Sarajevo

Unfortunately this is the case for most Olympic venues. When they plan them they always claim they'll have great after-games public usage and they'll be self-sustaining, but most are simply left to rot and decay. The Games themselves have become little more than a money-grab and then they leave a scar on the landscape...I believe as time goes on and the world financial problems increase, the only way that games will be able to continue will be with permanent facilities which will then rotate the games and perhaps a slpit in profits or shared expenses. As it is several games have driven nations or cities to the brink of bankruptcy like the '76 Montreal games (they were paying off that debt for 30 years), the 2004 Games (costing Greece $1t billion, three times the original budget, and Russia is dropping a staggering $48 BILLION (USD)on the Sochi games for 2014. By comparison, the last Winter Olympics in Vancouver cost about $7 billion and the London games were just $3.3 Billion and China spent $40 on the 2008 games..it's fiscal insanity.
